March 14 (UPI) -- White House press secretary Sean Spicer will likely face questions about a new report that estimates 24 million more people would be uninsured under a new Republican health plan at Tuesday's press briefing.
Spicer is scheduled to address the press at 2 p.m. for the first time since the Congressional Budget Office issued its report Monday night. It found there would be more people uninsured than under the Affordable Care Act and premiums would initially increase before eventually lowering in cost. The Republican plan -- the American Health Care Act -- would likely reduce federal deficits over the next decade by $337 billion.
Also up for discussion will likely be the Department of Justice's request for more time to gather more evidence to support President Donald Trump's allegation on Twitter that former President Barack Obama had his phones wiretapped at Trump Tower.
The House Intelligence Committee set a Monday deadline for the DOJ to provide documentation of the accusation.
On Tuesday, Trump is scheduled to have lunch with Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, deputy crown prince and minister of defense of Saudi Arabia.
In the afternoon, Trump will speak with Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price. Later, he'll discuss healthcare with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
